NBA free agency rankings 2018: Clint Capela, Marcus Smart, Dwyane Wade among top players still on market – CBSSports.com

NBA free agency is officially three weeks old and while most of the big names are off the board, there are a few top 50 players left on the market. The most notable players still available are  Clint Capela, Marcus Smart and even long-time veteran Dwyane Wade. It’s only a matter of time before they have a new contract of some kind — whether it’s a big deal or coming at a bargain rate.

As for the stars who have gotten new deals, here’s a quick recap. LeBron James decided to take his talents to Los Angeles and join up with the Lakers. Golden State pulled off a massive surprise, agreeing to terms with All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins on a one-year, $5.3 million deal. Did the Warriors just create the most dominant starting lineup ever? If Cousins is healthy then it’s very possible. It was the biggest shock of NBA free agency so far, but there are still plenty of quality players still available.

Other stars quick to strike deals include Paul George re-upping with the Thunder, Chris Paul returning to the Rockets and Kevin Durant doing the same with the Warriors.

Our NBA experts submitted their own lists of the top 50 free agents before free agency began. The following is a cumulative ranking.

Control Your High With The Pax Vaporizer App – Green Rush Daily

The creators of one of the most user-friendly vaporizers for weed on the market recently introduced an innovative new feature to their latest devices. PAX is best known for their three self-named dry herb vaporizers. The PAX era vape pen which uses pre-filled pods can also be controlled with a smartphone app. The company recently updated the PAX vaporizer app, giving new and previous customers access to a more fine tuned experience.

New Feature

The PAX Era already comes with the ability to connect with the PAX vaporizer app. Until the recent update, the only thing you could customize on them were the colors and temperature. The vaporizer company took things a step further by introducing a “Session Control” mode.

We updated the app as soon as we found out about the new feature. Then, we loaded a PAX Era with the potent and tasty Sunset Gelato pod from Happy Sticks to test it out.

How To Use Session Control Mode

Start by picking the most comfortable temperature for your specific pre-filled PAX Era pod. We found the sweet spot with the Sunset Gelato pod to be between 550 and 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

On top of controlling the exact temperature, you’ll now get to choose how long a pull lasts before the heat cuts off. There are four dose settings to choose from: micro, small, medium and large.

If you leave the app on while you pull, you can see a green meter for your session increasing to 100 percent. Once the meter is filled, the PAX logo on your device will light aqua to indicate the session has been completed. The app will show a green screen with the words “SESSION COMPLETE!”

Then, you’ll have to wait 30 seconds before your next session unless you

James officially signed with L.A. on July 9. This appearance is his first at NBA Summer League since joining the Lakers this summer. 

James is coming off one of his greatest NBA seasons, playing in all 82 regular-season games for the Cavaliers while finishing third in the NBA with 27.5 points per game and hitting career highs with 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists. He then carried Cleveland to its fourth consecutive NBA Finals, where the Cavs were swept by Golden State.

The Lakers already have begun assembling a revamped team around James by acquiring Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson in free agency while retaining guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Los Angeles also assembled a reasonably talented young core before James’ arrival with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this article.

Who did sluggers pick to pitch in Derby? – MLB.com

From family members to longtime instructors, find out who these star sluggers picked to pitch to them at Nationals Park in the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, on Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

From family members to longtime instructors, find out who these star sluggers picked to pitch to them at Nationals Park in the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, on Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

:: Complete Home Run Derby coverage ::

1. Jesus Aguilar
A trip to the MLB All-Star Game will be a new experience for Brewers first-base coach Carlos Subero, who’s never participated in a home run derby of any kind before. But his selection as Aguilar’s pitcher is all about familiarity, with two years of experience pitching to the Milwaukee first baseman in batting practice.

“He’s been throwing BP for me for almost two years,” Aguilar said. “So he kind of knows me good. That’s why I chose him.” More >

2. Bryce Harper
As he promised earlier in his career, Harper is returning to this year’s Derby because of its location: Washington’s slugger was waiting for the event to be held at Nationals Park. While Harper has yet to publicly announce who will throw to him in the Derby — he will likely do that at Monday’s media availability — the Washington Post recently reported that Harper plans to call on his father, Ron, to help him capture his first Derby crown.

Harper credits his father for helping shape his swing as a youngster in Las Vegas. The two paired up on the national stage once before, in the 2013 Derby at Citi Field. That year, the 20-year-old Harper became the youngest player to ever reach a Derby final, before losing to Yoenis Cespedes.

Machado removed as precaution after rain – MLB.com

BALTIMORE — Sunday’s 6-5 first-half-sealing win over the Rangers could have been a feel-good occasion for the Orioles, a positive way to close a mostly miserable first half for a last-place club. But the team’s first back-to-back wins at Camden Yards — and first series win at home since May 13 — wasn’t about the on-field play. It was about the guy in the dugout.

Shortstop Manny Machado, who was removed for precautionary reasons following a 36-minute rain delay, watched the second half of the game in a sweatshirt, leaning on the home dugout railing. The biggest trade chip in advance of July 31’s non-waiver Trade Deadline will represent Baltimore on Tuesday in the All-Star Game presented by Mastercard. How long after that remains the O’s largest looming question.
